loud popping sound when turning the wheel.. any i deas??

I had a Eibach Pro Kit with shocks,struts, and springs installed 2 months ago and now when I turn my steering wheel, sometimes I hear a loud poping sound. Anyone know what it could be? I hope it's nothing bad. I also have 17s with a 204/45R17 tires. Any input would be appriciated. I would like to get some input before I go to a shop.

Try checking the front sway bar endlinks, and make sure they are tight.

You can do it. You might need tools though. Depends on what style end link they are.

If you don't, take it to the place you had install it, and have them look at them.

I might hold off until I get my Marcy intake so that I'll be under there anyways... I might as well look... But thanks for the help. By the way, how do you find threads that have Performance Shops in my area? Just curious.
